FieldConnex Temperature Multi-Input Device Integrated in PDM 8 via PROFIBUS
The FieldConnex Temperature Multi-Input (TMI) device can record up to eight temperatures in parallel via one address. The TMI is installed in the field, and the measuring probes are connected via short spurs—even in hazardous areas up to Zone 0 or Div. 1.
Users of version 8 or above of the Simatic PDM plant asset management system can now configure the TMI using EDDL. With the Simatic PDM, each channel can be set to accept resistance temperature sensors with two, three, and four-conductor technology or temperature elements, in addition to monitoring for wire breaks and short circuits. The TMI supports status lighting in conformity with NAMUR, NE 107 and PA Profile 3.02. The combination of asset management and digital communication minimizes the costs for planning, installation, and maintenance.
